frustration at the fbi and perhaps even a complaint by a member of that fbi team to republican staffers on capitol hill. all of that is still preliminary at this point, but certainly the next days are going to bring additional questions as to when officials started to learn how high up this went, how high up in the fbi and the justice department did that investigation go in terms of authorizing the examination, the e-mails, and why, for instance, director clapper didn't know earlier and why perhaps the president was not briefed earlier on this. >> all right. rajiv chandrasekaran. appreciate your time this morning. from "the washington post." we thank you. >>> today we honor veterans on this day. parades and services are held across the country to remember all chose who served. don't forget to thank them for their extraordinary sacrifices today. >>> president obama will pay tribute to them later this morning. he'll lay a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier at arlington national cemetery. a familiar challenge for the folks in washington, how to fix the u.s. economy. with just 51 day

something ichlg e-mails went to the level of the fbi, how the fbi could have been investigating it this long, and if general petraeus was involved to me the fbi had an obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest date. so it seems this has been going on for several months and yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up that you have this type of investigation, the fbi investigating e-mails, the e-mails leading to the cia director, and it taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. so i have real questions about this. i think a timeline has to be looked at and analyzed to see what happened. now, as far as leaving a hole, general petraeus was an outstanding general, outstanding dedicated public official. he's going to be missed. but as i'm sure senator menendez would agree, no one is irreplaceable in government. but it is going to have at least a short-term impact. anytime you lose someone of general petraeus's stature, especially unde

, the way it came to light, we have some information, the fbi was investigating threatening harassing e-mails, sent to an unknown woman, paula broadwell, he was involved. >> to keep it straight, she sent e-mails she thought may be getting too close to her man who is not her man to begin with because he's married, she's married. the fbi goes-- the woman with threatening e-mails, i'm getting threatening e-mails, the fbi checks it out and leads to general petraeus. >> alisyn: reportedly. >> dave: you don't want to read too far into this, but it looks like there's another woman, but no one has reported that as of yet and there are two stories emerging on when exactly the president was informed of all of this. now, the latest, most popular report that is, is that the president was told after the election on thursday, that the white house learned on wednesday, the president was told on thursday. >> how long was the-- >> the other report, the fbi knew about this months before. there's another report from ronald kessler of news max, that says the white house intentionally sat on this until afte

you about the additional complications, because it now turns out the way the f.b.i. found out about that is because paula broadwell, the mistress, was sending threatening e-mails to another woman, whom she regarded as a threat to her relationship with petraeus. what do you know about that relationship between the other woman and petraeus? >> well, there is an f.b.i. investigation. that is continuing. i read "the post" and "the times" this morning and it's pretty well laid out, i think. i just hate to discuss it except to say there are a number of things that one has to consider, the first of which was there any kind of national security breach? to date, there was not. and the f.b.i. briefed me now. i actually wish we had been briefed a little bit earlier. so that the full intelligence committee, one of the things that i tried to do, chris, is bring both sides together. so my vice chairman chambliss and i share material and work together. that is a very important concept. with neither of us knowing ahead of time, all of this comes as a big shock. and we are very much able to keep thi
